  1. I'll have a think about how I'd do this but I'm sure I can make it work. (Edit: added as an issue on GitHub to remind me: https://github.com/jamesoff/alfred-ynab/issues/1 ) I've just posted an update which fixes (hopefully properly this time) parsing of the budget when you have overspends. It also has some more speed improvements. Download link: http://cloud.jamesoff.net/0J2t2614191h
  2. Click the link in my post, then on the page which opens click the "YNAB budget check.alfredworkflow" button which will download it. Then, find it in your Downloads folder and open it and Alfred will pop up to install it.
  3. Updated 2014-08-27 to fix showing 0.00 as "no budget left" rather than "overspent", and to add some caching to speed things up a little. http://cloud.jamesoff.net/2C04451d3R3Q
  4. Just tested the link in my post above, and the one in the first post (which is the same) and both seem to work OK to me.
  5. Updated 2013-11-11 with better parsing of overspent categories. http://cloud.jamesoff.net/1d1T3A2m0e1A
  6. Glad it's working for someone! aptJqK, here's a version which should fix the issue of the single quote breaking it: http://cl.ly/3b1I161G0y1W
  7. Ok, that sounds like something that'd cause problems - my budget file is just called "My Budget". I'll take at look at that. No idea why it would say what it's saying about your budget categories though - I had to reverse engineer the data file and parse it myself, so if there's something you're doing in your budget I don't have in mine that could confuse it. Are you using YNAB in a reasonably straightforward fashion? Unfortunately the best way for me to look in to it is for you to send me your budget file (or, if you can make a demo budget file which reproduces the problem, that).
  8. I'm not sure what's up with the File Actions not working right In the meantime I'll put in a different method for pointing it at your budget file, watch this space! Edit: here it is: http://cl.ly/400k1H0Q1s29 There's now a "budgetlocation" keyword which takes the full path to your budget file as a parameter. You can also use "auto" as the parameter to make it go back to the default auto-detect mode. (An easy way to get the path: search for your budget file in Alfred like above (activate Alfred and then put in '.ynab4), and then hit the right arrow and choose "Copy path to clipboard".) Sorry it's a bit of a kludge for now!
  9. This is a workflow which lets you look up how much you have left in a You Need a Budget (http://www.youneedabudget.com) category for the current month. It looks for your budget file in ~/Dropbox/YNAB and ~/Documents/YNAB. If you have a single budget in one of those folders, it will use that and needs no configuration. If you have multiple budgets, or a budget somewhere else, you can use a File Action on it to select it as the budget to use. Fuzzy/substring matching, tries to use the currency symbol/format based on the budget's configuration. Hacked up the code to parse the YNAB data myself, so please make sure that it's reporting accurately for you and let me know if not!
